No it does not. They are two completely different things.

If you're good at listening, it doesn't mean that you can speak fluently. But that MAY mean that you're accent and pronunciation are acceptable.

Well, you can't do both at the same time for sure. A lot can be said for the ability to shut up and listen.

Being a good listener can in fact make you a better speaker. By learning to listen good you will learn to pronounce words that you may never have been familiar with. You can also listen how people talk and pronounce certain words and put phrases and sentenses together allowing you then to practice your speech pattern. So in conclusion yes you can put together the three "L's" Look, Listen and Learn.

I agree with migram64 and huntbill. Listening is important to good communication. It can help you improve your vocabulary. And a good listener can assess where others are coming from and how to respond to them.
